VIDEONALE.scope: A experimental film and video art series by Videonale Bonn

The experimental film and video art series VIDEONALE.scope has complemented the Videonale Bonn programme since 2013. In addition to the biennial VIDEONALE – Festival for Video and Time-Based Arts at the Kunstmuseum Bonn, which presents the latest positions from the field of moving images, VIDEONALE.scope expands the event spectrum by a cinema format with a focus on thematically conceived programmes that bring young and historical positions into dialogue. The format thus ties in with the 1st Videonale (1984), which already presented film and video as part of the festival program at the time.

VIDEONALE.scope #10 − Open Your Scope - Counter Narratives

Video, short film, performance

29.11. - 02.12.2023 | Turistarama and Moltkerei Werkstatt Cologne

We are organizing the 10th edition of our video and experimental film series VIDEONALE.scope in cooperation with IMAI - Inter Media Art Institute from 29.11. - 02.12.2023 at Turistarama and Moltkerei Werkstatt in Cologne. For the anniversary edition, four filmmakers and artists who have already accompanied VIDEONALE.scope on other occasions − Eli Cortiñas, Ayesha Hameed, Ji Su Kang-Gatto and Vika Kirchenbauer − are each curating a program for the thematic framing "Open Your Scope − Counter Narratives". In the programs, dominant narratives are questioned and alternative constructions of reality are tested under changing focal points. "Scope" is literally understood in translation as an expanded frame or room to maneuver: Away from the canon, the artistic works process marginalized knowledge and experiment with new narrative forms.
